There was an issue with file handles being left open when they weren't needed which will be fixed in 2.5 (and is fixed in the 2.5 beta).  Also, in 2.5 you can run a cluster with a dedicated "logger" node which should improve some of the cluster behavior with such a large cluster.

I would recommend jumping in and trying out the beta.
